Chet Baker‘ favorite tunes

Hard Bop and Cool Jazz

Bill Petry (tp), Attila Muhel (g), Olaf Casimir (b),
Andrea Marcelli (dr)

A charming evening dedicated to the jazz legend Chet Baker and
some of the music that he loved to play. An acoustic quartet featuring
young and talented Bill Petry on trumpet, great guitarist Attila Muhel,
warm bassist Olaf Casimir and passionate drummer Andrea Marcelli.

BILL PETRY – Trumpet
„Bill Petrys warmer Sound und sein ehrliches, lyrisches Spiel sind unverkennbar von den Größen des West-Coast-Jazz inspiriert. Davon ausgehend hat der junge Trompeter seine ganz eigene, harmonisch raffinierte Sprache entwickelt, die weder auf komplizierte Phrasen noch auf Effekthascherei setzt. Dass Till Brönner ihn als seinen talentiertesten Schüler bezeichnete ist hinfällig, da er über diesen Status längst hinausgewachsen ist.“

– Wayne Shorter wrote: „Andrea Marcelli’s music is vibrant and
thought-provoking as today’s events. Andrea is such a chameleon.
When I first heard his music, it struck me that he played drums,
clarinet, percussion, keyboards and composed in a variety of styles
that defied classification, moreover, his display of sensitivity and
creative approach to the work produced.“
